This Christmas give a gift that will help bring hope into someone's life!
For many families Christmas is a time when friends and loved ones gather together, but what about those who do not have a warm home, a safe environment, the company of family, or food to eat?
As we near the Christmas season it is important to think of those who have no home to celebrate in this Christmas. While we celebrate with our loved ones in warm homes, there are many people out on the streets alone without anyone to celebrate with.
It is our hope, with gratefulness for your compassion and generosity, that you would partner with us in reaching out to those in need in our community with the love of God. Together we can make this season a bit brighter with hope and love as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

PDF Christmas Card for a Homeless Man
Last year we received so many Christmas cards for our clients that each day we were able to slip 2-3 cards under their door so that they would have mail when they came home. Our clients loved the cards! Some would show others what cards they received, some would display them in their rooms, some would keep track of how many they received and were excited about how many they got! Even though you might not know them, a card from you will make a wonderful impact on their lives!
